M’s Present by Hubby and I

Today the moving folks came to take part of our stuff. Even though it hasn’t really hit us, our (slow) big move to England is finally starting. We can’t wait and in my head I’m imagining all the places we’ll see and the food we’ll eat. You all know I LOVE to eat. You should have been there for our first date. I ate everything on my plate! My then not-even-boyfriend was in awe. It’s amazing that he called me up again the next day he he… Today I took lots of naps and by late afternoon I was feeling

M’s Sketch #4 Winners

Finally!!! Sorry for the delay! First of all M loved these cards: Cole (5) Aimee Sparkle Wendy Todd Ashley Nguyen Newell But the winners are: Autumn Sims Ashley Cannon Newell M loved all the cards but we never got to commenting on all of them — or I did and she didn’t.

I have every single body part that I was born with. Everything else in my life… they’re wonderful bonuses. My education has been a

Ok, it was hard for me for her, she just whipped her card right out after she did her sketch. Now, the weather has been dreary here and since I work during the day I’ve been having a hard time taking good pictures. So this will do. M was also not feeling too hot this morning.

M’s Sketch Challenge #3 Winner

Wow, sorry for the delay. This week’s just been hectic and I haven’t had a good chance to sit on the Mac to put the photos together for the round-up and winners.   M LOVES all your submissions and she gets so excited when she sees each one of your work. She wishes she can write more but right now her one little sentence is all she can do. We did talk about “love” and “cute” so hopefully next time she’ll remember to write them correctly. Teaching a kid how to write is so hard, especially for words like “pretty”. The
